HENRY Healthy Families is an eight-week course for parents with babies and children under five. It aims to help develop healthy lifestyle habits including food, activity, and families’ daily routines. It is provided in small groups of up to 12 parents in local community and children’s centres.

HENRY courses have been shown to be highly effective in helping families with young children to live healthy lifestyles. Many parents describe it as life-changing.

Who’s it for? Parents with babies and toddlers under five years old in the Better Start Bradford area.

Who delivers it? Local children’s centres and other partners in the Better Start Bradford area. HENRY is a national charity working in partnership with us to provide this and other activities to support a healthy start in life.

A parent who recently completed our online group programme told us:

“I didn’t think I needed to go on a parenting course – my children have always eaten really healthily – but I couldn’t believe how much I learnt from the HENRY programme. It’s been wonderful to meet other parents and to understand more about how I interact with my children – I feel so much closer to them and I can see why they react to certain situations.

“Everything is much happier and calmer now – and we do actually eat even healthier than before!”
